RFE for Update 3: Update qla2200 & qla2300 to 6.06.10
Last modified: 2013-08-05 21:03:02 EDT
We owned several licences of Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 2.1 w/ both
standart and premium support. One of our first pre-requisities is the
update of qlogic HBA driver from 6.04.01 (present in 2.4.9-e.31) to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cat /proc/scsi/qla2300/0 | grep "Driver version"
Actual Results: Driver version 6.04.10
Expected Results: Driver version 6.06.10
can you say WHY you need 6.06.10 ?
What does it do that 6.04.10 does not do for you ?
We need a more recent qlogic driver to keep the EMCÂ² support.
As you can see in this EMCÂ² Support matrix:
Do a search of v6.05.00 string in this doc.
Some pre-requisities by EMCÂ² need v6.05.00.
But 6.06.10 will be better of course.
EMC has rectified the driver we ship as well and SHOULD be in that
In the EMC Support matrix, we see on page 357 lots of reference to
indice 8 on the fifth column which is "Driver Version v6.05.00.".
This is the case for most of our Qlogic card from IBM x335, x345, etc..
So it's seems that EMC require an upgraded driver corresponding to
From RHEL AS 3.0 U3 Release Notes:
QLogic Fibre Channel (qla2xxx driver)
* These drivers have been updated from 6.07.02-RH2 to 7.00.03-RH1
So we can close this bug.
